METHODS Subjects were recruited from a single ALF in Pittsburgh, PA. Usability testing sessions required subjects to execute tasks essential to using EMMA(®)(More)
The purpose of this paper is to describe pilot work on a semantic model of the pharmacogenomics information found in drug product labels. The model's development is driven by a series of use cases that we have developed to demonstrate how structured pharmacogenomics information could be more effectively used to support clinical and translational efforts.(More)
INTRODUCTION As key experts in supporting medication-decision making, pharmacists are well-positioned to support the incorporation of pharmacogenomics into clinical care. However, there has been little study to date of pharmacists' information needs regarding pharmacogenomics. Understanding those needs is critical to design information resources that help(More)

Objective To develop and evaluate a pharmacogenomics information resource for pharmacists. Materials and Methods We built a pharmacogenomics information resource presenting Food and Drug Administration (FDA) drug product labelling information, refined it based on feedback from pharmacists, and conducted a comparative usability evaluation, measuring task(More)
BACKGROUND Drug information compendia and drug-drug interaction information databases are critical resources for clinicians and pharmacists working to avoid adverse events due to exposure to potential drug-drug interactions (PDDIs). Our goal is to develop information models, annotated data, and search tools that will facilitate the interpretation of PDDI(More)
